Steps To Develop Your English Skills

Step 2: Start Orientation Process

An advisor at LARA will meet with you and other students in a small group to explain what services, resources, and support we offer to help you enhance your English skills. You will be guided through LARA’s policies, procedures, and expectations during this orientation process.

Step 3: Take A Pre-Test

You will take a test known as the TABE CLAS-E which assesses your current English skills in reading, listening, writing, and speaking. Your test results from this exam inform you, your advisors, and your teachers about your current skill level as well as which class level you should be placed in.

Step 4: Attend Class

You will meet your teacher and get to know your fellow classmates. Class time is where you get to learn and develop your English language skills. 

Step 5: Take a Post-Test

Depending on which class level you are in (Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced), you will take the TABE CLAS-E Test every 30-50 hours of attending class. This tracks the progress you make in your English skills and identifies areas that need improvement. Your post-test scores may also give you the opportunity to advance to a higher-level class.
